Harry Redknapp blasted his side's lack of creativity as they crashed to a disappointing 1-0 home defeat by Wolves.
Kevin Doyle's early strike condemned Spurs to their third home defeat of the season which threatens to undermine their attempts of breaking into the Champions League spots.
"We probably didn't create enough chances," admitted Redknapp. "We had loads of the ball, probably about 80% of the ball but it's hard when teams just sit in there. It's hard to break them down and they had no need to come out."
Despite their possession, Wolves goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann was not stretched until late in the game when Tom Huddlestone shot towards the top corner.
It was Huddlestone who gave away the foul on Karl Henry that led to Nenad Milijas swinging over a free-kick for Doyle to head home.
"I didn't think it was a foul for the goal," Redknapp said. It was Wolves' fourth win of the season, lifting their hopes of survival.
Wolves boss Mick McCarthy said: "Marcus Hahnemann's not been diving around making saves everywhere. I expect my keeper to have to make saves when we go to Spurs.
"I don't care about stats. Somebody told me the other day they had played well on prozone, but do I give a flying about that? No I don't.
"Possession and passes and switching play and really good stuff at times but Marcus made one really good save and no, we haven't been mullered.
"They have to work like that at every game. If we have any passengers we're knackered."
